Jersey City, NJ, United States, 2007/11/13 - Telargo, Inc., a leading provider of fleet management solutions announced it has upgraded its public transit Passenger Information Service solution to indicate which approaching buses are low floor type and are suitable for people with special needs.
Bogdan Pavlic, president and CEO of Telargo, said, "The number of people with specialized transportation needs is growing and public transit operators must better manage these customer groups to ensure a positive commuting experience.”
Pavlic continued, “We’re confident the enhancements we’ve made to the Telargo system will allow public transit operators to attract new passengers and increase the satisfaction of existing passengers—all of whom will be better able to move about at will, engage in social and recreational activities when desired and access business and social services when needed.”
Telargo provides public transit passengers real-time Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA), which is calculated from various parameters such as current vehicle position, statistical history of trips and average speed on a particular route. Passengers can access this information through on-board and on-stops displays, (mobile) Internet or over a mobile phone’s short messaging service.
With the upgraded system, disabled, elderly and parents with strollers or small children can additionally access information about the arrival times of low floor buses that are easier to board. Public transit operators can customize the solution based on unique needs and requirements. The low floor type bus can, for example, be represented with a letter or a graphic icon.
